    Not sure what an FM tuner does but you can try an app called "tunein radio". It plays all your local stations and its free

    I guess you could say you were TMobiled. :D

    I'm surprised people are still so interested in FM radio at this point.

    ha, Verizon gimped the Droid 2 but some people over at XDA figured out a way to use stuff from the Droid X to enable it. Believe the hardware isn't there altogether on the Fascinate though.

    I know! AM Radio is so much better!:p

    Great app! Thanks! Better than an FM radio. It gets the AM radio talk stations too! Now I can stay up all night listening to Coast to Coast without all the static, drift, and skip. If only I didn't have to sleep.

    On the lines of FM tuners, is there an app or something that can be used for FM transmission? My car doesn't have bluetooth so that is not an option.

    I have a Motorola hands free speaker that my phone connects to via bluetooth, and the speaker can connect to my stereo via fm transmitter. That's as close as you are going to get with Fascinate I think.

    Don't forget, also great for sports! Especially if you're out of town and want to hear your hometown team play and or local sports talk.

    I would love to know the answer to this, as well. So no android apps out there that can control this hardware if there is one in the phone?

    Or is there some place we can download the app that was designed for the original galaxy s?
